At Biberaj & Snow, representing juveniles who have been charged with a criminal violation is a major focus of our practice. Attorneys Buta Biberaj and Matthew Snow have many years of experience in representing juveniles and working in the Juvenile Court System. We use our skills and experiences to work to achieve the best possible result that we can for our juvenile clients.
If you are not familiar with the court system, the Juvenile Court system can be an especially confusing place. The legal terms used to describe what happens in the Juvenile Court are different than those used for an adult, and juvenile proceedings frequently require many more court appearances and require many more people to be involved than an adult case would.
Although penalties for juveniles may be less serious than for an adult, this does not mean that juveniles should have substandard criminal defense. We offer our clients equal attention and service, whether they are under 18, adults, or first-time offenders. For these reasons, having an experienced lawyer guide you and your child through this process can greatly reduce your stress and anxiety.
Juvenile legal matters typically fall into one of the following categories:
- Juvenile Delinquency (criminal charges)
- Status Offenses (truancy, tobacco, curfew)
- School Disciplinary Process
- Abuse & Neglect Cases
We provide legal representation for juvenile defendants in Loudoun & Fairfax County Virginia on all matters, including but not limited to: underage possession of alcohol, possession of marijuana and other drug violations, driving violations, truancy, expulsion, and misdemeanor and felony offenses.
